Around 16,000 Primary 4 to 6 students from 59 schools in Macao returned to school to resume classes on 25th May. The related schools had followed the Guidelines for Class Resumption issued by the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau (hereinafter referred to as the “DSEJ”) to disinfect the school campus and strengthen their hygiene measures, as well as conduct a drill on class resumption. All school staff and cross-border students had passed their nucleic acid tests as well.
On that morning, the directors, heads and staff of the DSEJ went to different schools to understand the situation. As observed, most students were accompanied to school by their parents. They disinfected their hands, prepared the health declaration and took their temperature before entering the school. The schools implemented various school epidemic prevention measures in a strictly and orderly manner. The overall operation was smooth.
In the early stage of class resumption, parents and teachers are suggested to provide more support and concern for their children/students, and help them adapt to the learning environment again, participate in their learning life actively and establish good living and hygiene habits. The DSEJ will continue to pay attention to the class resumption situation of different schools, and work with various education stakeholders to ensure the health and safety of teachers and students.View gallery
